Josh Hawley’s 2016 Attorney General campaign filed its third quarter campaign finance report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on October 15th:

Po Box 1073 Party Affiliation: Republican
Columbia Mo 65205 Established Date: 07/23/2015

[….]

[emphasis added]

That’s three quarters of a million dollars raised in a little over two months. It’s easy, and not so impressive, when $600,000.00 of it came from four people. Just feel that grassroots momentum:

It’s not like there are campaign contribution limits in Virginia [pdf] and they need someplace else to spend all their money.

While the campaign has a lot of cash on hand it hasn’t burned through it at a high rate (as if there’s been time).
